the fact that i can sit with a computer for a few hours and come up with something that others view as being between decent and "wonderful" make me squirm. the sadness comes when i see how open the medium is. people can snag a crack for some bland software- holding no electronic influences whatsoever and start chugging out half- hour- mixes of nothing but off-count techno music.
as long as i still effort on behalf of myself and my friends being placed on the music they write- the time and pain they put into it. the emotion. then im perfectly satisfied staying in this genre.
though there have been times ive considered going back to the guitar....i just turn around and make a comparison as to what is left to explore in that medium. guitar, bass, drums, vocals....gets old. stale. get over it. music is noise. that is all. strip it down and it s all the same. noise. frequency. wave. plain. simplistic.
90% of what is out right now....gives little to no emotion. if you can make it sound like your influences....then youll be "fine."
how pathetic is that?
start writing things that mean something to you. not just because "it sounds good." music....is noise.
cease being stale. die.
